Spanning nine different categories including ‘Defining your Point of View’, ‘Making an Impression’ and ‘Learning by Doing’, young people will be able to discover Paul’s insights and anecdotes on the topics that are most relevant to graduates and those wanting to take the next step in their careers. The advice has been curated to appeal not only to fashion designers, but even aspiring chefs or publishers with a creative and entrepreneurial spirit can stand to benefit. The Foundation will evolve over time, with plans for new resources to be added to the website and social media channels periodically.

At a time when funding for the arts and access to education is at an all time low, Paul’s unconventional approach, tried and tested methods and enduring success can help guide emerging talent towards growing their own sustainable businesses and fulfilling careers.
